Hi, I was wondering if there is a way to mute the radio when putting the reverse gear and when the park distance control activates?
Even at moderate volume it's quite hard for me to hear the beep...
Turning down the volume everytime is somehwat anoying.

A more general question, does the music (CD) also pause when a mute signal comes in, e.g. HFT, or does it just turn off the sound??

In combination with this, as I have absolutely no clue about electronics, I would like to know, how the muting works? Is this a constant signal, thus signal start, the muting starts and when the signal ends, the muting does the same, or is it just an impulse to mute and another to unmute?


P.S. Turning the radio completely off is no alternative as I don't like the resume time of MP3 CDs when the radio was turned off.

No, not by the original installation. I wondered to put a cable, lets say from the rear lights or from the speaker or something to the mute pin on the radio, just like doing this with an HFT.
Or would there be problems due to different voltages?

Just hit the off button - it is quicker than turning down the voolume.
My answer to this: Please read the P.S. message at my first post ;)

Concerning resume after phone calls, this is not good.
But when putting the reverse gear, I usually don't do this when I want to continue driving, so it doesn't really matter. But in these modern times, needing to push a button (or turning down the volume) to better hear the sound of the PDC is no acceptable situation IMHO :confused:
It sure is feasible without any effort, but it bothers me nevertheless. Particularly because I feel distracted by it from the "driving procedure". Backing up with the Civic is in my eyes some sort of game play... The huge C-pillar does easily swallow a motorcycle or even a car. So I want the PDC directly at full presence with no distraction by music or pushing a button or turning a wheel.

So another question... Do the beeps from the sensors come from only one speaker? My current car uses the stereo speakers and if the sensor at the back left picks up something, the back left speaker bleeps (while reducing the stereo volume ;)) if it's in the middle, both speakers bleep etc.

Just one speaker.

Reversing Sensors

Does anyone know where the speaker for the reversing sensor is situated :?: - I too have found the volume to low, and was wondering if it is possible to move it to a more prominent position. - My car boot is crammed full of tools and equipment ( after all it is a work car ;) ) at the moment and I haven't had the opportunity to search for it.

A mute button that just puts a CD on hold would be a good facility.

I just keep pressing the steering wheel volume button until it's very low.

Have you tried pressing the Vol Up & Vol Down buttons together - that's how I can pause/mute my current car stereo???

It is a rocker switch kind of thing - so you can´t.

Not really... It does this and more :) Because just putting the CD on hold would not require that much time to restart playback as it takes when turning the radio off ;)

Easier to hit OFF.
Don't think so, that is the point of the original post, hitting the Off button means that a .mp3 CD then needs to rescan the CD, which can take up to 30 secs to start playing again, which is what we want to avoid.

Radio or normal .cda CD is quite quick at resuming normal play.

It works for me, a music CD re engages after around 10 secs and an MP3 (full) takes around 20sec.
VMMV
